Grilled chicken kabobs - perfect recipe for a party

Easy & Healthy Grilled Chicken Kebabs Recipe

I don’t know about you, but I really enjoy cooking up some delicious kabobs for friends and family in the summer! These yummy Mediterranean chicken kabobs are sure to please at your next cookout. Plus, they are simple to prepare. That’s why this recipe is perfect for a party or BBQ! (Especially, if you snag some inexpensive chicken from Zaycon! Holla!)

There is a lot of great flavor going on in this Mediterranean-style marinade. It is bright and fresh! I also love that this recipe is on the healthy side of the spectrum. The chicken is sweetened with honey and the fresh flavor comes from the lemon juice, garlic, and herbs.

Mediterranean Chicken Kabob Marinade

I usually use dried sage in this marinade recipe to keep things super easy, and because I already have a little container of dried sage hanging around. You can try out subbing 2 teaspoons dried rosemary for the fresh rosemary too, but I think it is nice to get some fresh herb flavor in there somewhere. 🙂

Preparing the Chicken

This Mediterranean chicken is really easy to prepare! Just cut up the chicken, whisk together the marinade, and throw it all in a large resealable bag or container. Then let it marinate for at least 6 hours or overnight. Grill the meat for about 8 minutes and enjoy. It is simple but delicious.

Serving Tips

Double or triple the recipe, put together a bunch of tasty Mediterranean chicken kabobs, and invite some friends and family over. 😉 P.S. I often use more chicken, closer to 1 1/2 pounds, and find that I don’t need to increase the marinade recipe for that amount.

If you’re looking for some great skewers for your next BBQ, check out the Norpro Stainless Steel 14-inch skewers. I have two sets of them! They last for years and work well with a simple and sturdy design.
